and plz just find this entertaining..

You don't need to solder to hack a 360...

That's just a sort of BS again... OMG I know why i left the 360 scene.. Damn.

What they offer will NOT work, or work at least for some weeks and then its done!! That littly tiny Mainboard is such a bad manufactured thing, its not reliable! And for those dont trust me... I know the manufacturing company for the 360Key and their dumb MB. I know that guy a long time and get a sample of him.

DONT TRUST THIS!!! You will be screwed within 1-2 MONTH!!

Stay on Jtag or flash your drive but stay faaaar away from that Moneymakin BS!!!


(YES, 360KEY team remember us)

Not for 125 bucks plus mark up by vendors and added shipping and handling. I will take my chances with a "JTAG"ing i just need a power supply and some x-clamps and im good to go, then I might firmware flash my elite's lite-on drive. I will never open my slim. I find PS3 games are not that great, and always having to load crap onto the hdd. But i have to admit they do get their releases a lot faster when they are released for multi-console.

It's too costly. Just like how the original PSJailbreak was. Won't be long before someone ports it.

I'll finally buy an XBOX360 I guess, already have a Kinect I bought for some DIY stuff!
